Fresh Fall Centerpieces

Yes, it’s in the air, can you feel it?  Autumn has arrived!  The air is getting cooler and the leaves are beginning to change.   Nature puts on the best show this time of year and provides us with plenty to work with when creating seasonal centerpieces.  Here are my favorites to inspire you this season in creating a beautiful display! 

A branch stabilized in moist floral foam and wrapped in burlap sack makes an stately centerpiece on a simple fall table.  Pair it with smaller arrangements of flowers in fall colors.

Pine cones purchased at a craft store or collected on an autumn walk make perfect vase filler.  Add mini ornaments suspended on simple branches to complete the look.

Natural acorns make charming ornaments too, you can even add craft paint to the shells for a fun pop of color.

What is fall without pumpkins?  Silver painted minis make elegant candleholders on top of mercury glass candlesticks.

  1. Love the acorn ornaments on the branch. Reminds me of a Holiday Mantle I designed. Take a look at my Mantel Magic Blog Post to see a photo! Thanks!!

  2. You always make decorating look so easy! It’s so difficult for me – I’m just not a natural! You’re examples help me out so much!

  3. Love all these inspirations! But my favorite would have to be the twigs and leaves you can bring indoors – too bad, I didn’t get to do that this year, maybe next year! ;-)

  4. Няшечки. У мя есть проблема
    А седые волосы,которые вдруг оказались в волосах,это признак чего?А если их не закрашивать,что получится?

  5. I have personally looked at your electronic magazine for 3 years. BHG Centsational Style format is the best yet. Not waiting for ads to load before you can see content. Ability to see content without waiting for view all options. No annoying videos, that are too loud, not necessary and have the same ad on every video. When puts a survey together, ask if we like what view! There is too much repeating of content. If BHG is struggling for content, ask for public submissions, limit the number of days, don’t run your normal of 13 repeated options to view – one fascinating option would be more then I could enjoy. Occasionally I pick up a magazine with one item I’ve viewed electronically and pause and think I’ve seen this but I don’t delete the entire email because I’ve seen it all before. Food for thought.
